Greg Sparkman

Obituary

Greg Sparkman passed away peacefully in Hospice at the age of 62. He is survived by his son, Jordan Sparkman, brother, Kelly Sparkman, and sister, Susan Sparkman.

 

Greg was born in San Antonio, TX and grew up in Garland, TX. He was an achieved basketball player for the South Garland school district and went on to play at Cisco Junior College. After basketball, Greg moved on to play slow pitch softball for a sponsored travel team and spent most of his time on the ballfield or the golf course. He was someone that led the way and enjoyed life the way he wanted to. He was a loving and devoted father, family man and friend. He was loved by so many around him and touched the lives of many more. He leaves many memories behind but he always believed that there was a better world on the other side waiting to be explored and that one day he would see us again.

    Greg, Your passing touched more lives than you could ever imagine. You taught me more than I could ever have taught me. You met the measure of a b=great basketball player because you made everyone that you played with or against become a better player. That was all that any coach could ask. RIP You will be missed.

    Greg left me with loving memories to hold in my heart. I didn’t see him often but we made it a point to call on each other’s birthday, every year since 1982. He made me laugh like no other. Boy, did we have fun. I loved him dearly.

    I will never forget the laughter and fun we all shared at Cisco Jr. College and beyond. Those were the best of times. Like the words from that Randy Travis song, “it’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you, it’s what you leave behind you when you go.” You left so much my dear friend. Love you Greg.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
